Glen's


grant is


pending
The Glen St. Mary Town
Council was told the evening of
April 17 it should know within
a month whether a Small Cit-
ies Community Development
Block Grant is approved to add
the water system north of US
90.
During a second public hear-
ing, Tim Norman of Jordan and
Associates of Orange Park said
in the event Glen is passed over
for the $600,000 grant, it could
qualify for a $70,000 package
to pay for the engineering phase
and that puts the town on a fast
track for the construction grant
the following year.
The hearing was held three
days before the grant applica-
tion was due and, similar to one
on March 20, drew no com-
ments from the public. Glen
has funded the bulk of US 90
sewer connection and a wa-
ter system to the south via the
CDBG grants, federal money
that can be used for housing re-
hab or utility construction.
The grants require at least 51
percent of the funds benefit low
to moderate income residents,
which should present no'prob-
lem along Clinton, Jefferson,
Sherman and Stoddard Sts. as
proposed.
Mr. Norman said Glen could
also opt to use its own funds for
the engineering phase, which
also puts it at the head of the list
for later consideration.
The representative of the
Jordan firm, which is paid a
percentage of the grant to ap-
ply for and administer it, also
suggested the council turn its
attention to similar funding ap-
plications in the event a pro-
posed residential development
springs up just south of town
limits near the interstate. The
tract is currently owned by the
Glen St. Mary Nurseries Com-
pany.
A public hearing and ini-
tial vote on a proposal to close
three road rights-of-way was
postponed until May 1 because
of an error in a public notice ad-
vertising. It mistakenly omitted
North Highland Ave. as one of
the three closures. The others
are North Orange Ave. and East

More arsenic: Nelsons office involved


The controversy surrounding Dr. Ali-
son Lex and her firing from Fraser Hos-
pital has now spread all the way to Wash-
ington.
On April 19. Senator Bill Nelson (D)
waded hip-deep into the issue after review-
ing press reports from The Baker Countyr
Press and the Florida Times-Union. Sena-
tor Nelson sent a letter to the EPA office in
Atlanta, asking Jimmy Palmer, the admin-
istrator there, to review Dr. Lex's findings
and samples.
"While the doctor's findings are sci-
entifically inconclusive," Senator Nelson
wrote. "some medical experts observe
that Baker stands out when compared to
other Florida counties for higher rates of


citain cancers and diseases."
Dr. Lex has already sent off tier find-
ings to the EPA'and the Centers for Dis-
ease Control in Atlanta, as well as several
state agencies. Baker County lags behind
the rest of Florida in a number of health-
related areas: its death rates for heart dis-
ease, cancer, stroke and diabetes are far
worse than the state averages.
Dr. Lex began working at Fraser Hospi-
tal in late 2006 and was fired on February
23 of this \ear. During her brief. 130-day
tenure in Baker County she observed what
she said were troubling symptoms consis-
tent with arsenic poisoning in several of
her patients.
The reason behind her firing remains


a mystery. Dennis Markos, the chief ad-
ministrator at Baker County Medical Ser-
vices, does not speak to The Press. He
would only tell the Times-Union that Dr.
Lex "failed to meet expectations."
Dr. Lex has said that Mr. Markos ac-
cused her of playing "Joan of Arc." The
doctor, who resigned from the Navy as
a lieutenant commander to take the local
position, says that her actions were con-
sistent with the job she was hired to do.
In a related area. one of the develop-
ers of the former Pineview golf course in
northwest Macclenny says an indepen-
dent analysis of soil scraped off portions
of the property because of arsenic content
are not hazardous.


'Living'


again










of a revitalized downtown Mac-
clenny core.
It's about shops and res-
taurants, for sure; but it's also
a vision that includes places to
live apartments and condos
with ample parking and an
atmosphere that beckons peo-
ple to the center of what was,
years ago, a town center.
The past year and a half, Mr.
Burnsed has been busy carving
out his own contribution to that
vision.
It's the building on the
southeast corner of US 90 and
College St. about as core as
you can get.
SIn a few weeks, he'll be
leasing the three apartments
he's constructed on the second
floor of what years ago was a


DEP wants

developers'

contaminant

study results
The state's environmental
agency has given the devel-
opers of the former Pineview
Golf Course until May 4 to
produce results of an indepen-
dent analysis of a large mound
of dirt stored several stories
high on the south border of the
137-acre property in northwest
Macclenny.
In an April 23 certified letter
from the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection
to Rock Rhoden of Golfview
Properties, LLC of Macclen-
ny, district director Gregory
J. Strong noted the develop-
ers have so far not responded
to requests for the information
made in February and March.
Mr. Rhoden's father Thomas
Rhoden, listed in state records
as the sole officer of Golfview,
said on Monday of this week
the independent testing turned
up nothing alarming in the lev-
els of arsenic or other contami-
nants in the stored soil.
Golfview, which includes
several other owners, scraped
hundreds of tons of topsoil
three months ago from the old
golf course because it had high
arsenic levels from decades of
herbicide and fertilizer appli-
cation. The' group intends to
develop the tract as Barber's
Plantation with about 400
homes, but has yet to submit a
plat to the City of Macclenny.
The dirt, dubbed "Mount
Pineview" by local wags, was
pushed into a large pile on the
south portion of the former golf
course property of Lowder St.
It is adjacent to residential ar-
eas to the east, south and west.
Residents of nearby subdivi-
sions, including Heritage Oaks
directly east and currently un-
der development, have com-
plained to the DEP and news-
paper in recent weeks, fearing
airborne contaminants due to
recent high.winds blowing in
their direction from the top of
the mound.
Mr. Rhoden claimed this
week the recent analysis turned
up arsenic levels below those
at Knabb ballfields to the east.
"The dirt while it sits there
should pose no danger to any-
one living nearby," said Mr.
Rhoden, who intends to sell it
off as surplus fill for parking
lots and building foundations,
uses for which it is permitted.
He lamented that the timing of
both projects prevented sale of
the dirt as fill for the new Wal-
Mart Supercenter.
Told of the DEP demand this
week, Mr. Rhoden referred fur-
ther questions to Ernest Frey,
a former state environmental
engineer now associated with
Phoenix Environmental Group,
Inc. of Jacksonville. A tele-
phoned request for comment
from Mr. Frey late Tuesday af-
ternoon was not returned.
Pineview was constructed
under another name nearly a
half-century ago and operated
continuously until it was sold
in July, 2005 by local physician
Gary Dopson for $4.2 million.

fitness center and the second to a
construction company.
The partners purchased the
building and its 8000 square feet
with an eye on investment and
rentals, but the project didn't gel
until a year and a half ago when
Mr. Bursed, fresh with a general
contractor's license, got to work
on the upstairs.
With his bachelor's degree
in nursing, he was eligible to sit
for the license test, an outgrowth
of rehab housing investments in
Jacksonville and accompanying
frustration of having to wait on
contractors who believed their
time was more valuable than
his.
Mr. Burnsed has worked as a
nurse 18 years, inspired by years
of helping his late mother Bertha
at her assisted living home near
Baxter where he grew up. Off-
hours, he fixed up older houses -
most on Jacksonville's westside.
Now he's into spec houses in
the same neighborhoods, and
of course, finishing up on the
project downtown.
The exterior is finished off
in a smooth concrete painted a
relaxed tan, with accent windows
and a front awning. The first
floor commercial spaces are
partitioned off using practical
floor plans.
The upstairs apartments two 2
bedroom and one 3 bedroom -
are a study in space utilization.
"The upstairs was pretty open;
it was probably used for storage
back then and maybe a saw shop
based on all the sawdust up
there," notes Mr. Burnsed. That


arrangement left it pretty much
open to design the apartment
space unhindered.
The largest unit, which will go
for, $900 or so a month, has large
windows facing west in the main
living area, flooding it with light.
Both it and the 2 bedroom facing
north have ample views of US
90 below you certainly know
you're in downtown Macclenny.
The other 2 bedroom is a
mirror of the first (they will rent
for, $700), but has more restricted
window views since it faces,
well, city hall to the east and a
bland rooftop along College to
the south.
Regardless, all three are
upscale by local standards, and
Mr. Burnsed intends to keep them
that way both via rent levels and
a close screening of applicants
(he already has a stable of them
from running ads). No pets, no
smoking and no nonsense.
Since there is but a single
access via rear stairs, tenants will
be able to see via remote camera
who is ringing their doorbell, and
they'll be able to talk with them
(just like Manhattan!).,
Parking? Well, that could be
a problem until the downtown
revitalization committee and
city commission figure out what
to do with College St. A plan to
convert it to angled parking and
one way traffic flow is still alive,
but a ways from fruition.
"Both Pat and I were
enthusiastic about this being
downtown, but when he saw
some other opportunities in
Jacksonville I decided to stay
and finish it," says Mr. Burnsed.
"We were always interested in


Amesic and old dirt...


(From page 1)
One of the complainants to
DEP recently was Kevin Shell,
an engineer who lives in Copper
Creek just north of the course
property. He was among several
neighbors irked when news of
the pending sale became known
and they realized their attractive
"fairway" views would disap-
pear with Barber's Plantation.
The name of the planned sub-
division is historically rooted,
harkening back to the same
name {hat area of present day
Macclenny had during the Civil
War.
The environmental agency
letter this week read in part: "...
DEP seeks both further informa-
tion and additional corrective
measures to provide assurance
that sufficient precautions are
employed at this site to protect
human health from unintended
exposure to contamination gen-
erated during the property's for-
mer golf course operations."
The agency said it has fears
that the scraped soil had arsenic
levels not allowed in residential
areas, and thus questions the
safety of the large mound where
it was redeposited. The mound's
location is actually closer to ex-
isting residential property than
it was as part of the 18-hole
course.
The sentiment echoes that


of a resident of nearby Heri-
tage Oaks, who did not want his
name used.
"It's not rocket science. If
that soil wasn't good enough
to leave over on the old course,
what the hell is it doing over
here near us?"
Several residents of the area
said their fear of arsenic con-
tamination is heightened in light
of well-publicized allegations
made recently by a physician
fired from Fraser Hospital (see
accompanying story). Ironi-
cally, Dr. Dopson figured into
that episode as well, though in
an unrelated role. The dismissed
physician had been recruited by
Fraser to take over Dr. Dopson's
practice when he joined the staff
at Northeast Florida State Hos-
pital.


the integrity of a downtown area
like this, and knew it could be
a benchmark or if we didn't do
it right, something that messes
everybody up."
He's 39 years old and his
vision is of a historic and quaint
district where people want to
come on cool evenings and
nice mornings, districts like
Jacksonville's Riverside or San
Marco.
"A lot of people who'll be
moving into Baker County in
the next few years will be used
to that type of district, and we're
in a position to get it ready for
them. All it takes is a few key
people to get the ball rolling."
Before the tenants move in,
Don Burnsed wants to have
an open house (apartment)
for the downtown committee
and property owners, perhaps
coupled with a reception and
meeting of the committee.
Quite naturally, he wants to
show it off, show others what can
be done with a solid building that
stood for years abandoned and
detracting from the vision Don
Burnsed wants to see become
reality.
(The writer is chairman of the
downtown revitalization board
made up of volunteers and city
officials.)

Washington St.
The closure request is from
Mr. and Mrs. Ray Gatlin of Mac-
clenny to position an undevel-
oped tract between US 90 and
Madison St. for future sale as
commercial property. All but a
section near Wildcat Dr. current-
ly. lies inside Glen.
Financial statements from
October (the start of Glen's fiscal
year) through the end of March
show revenues of $\16,079,
about $6500 over budget, and
expenses of $137,076, running
$4180 under what was antici-
pated.

Name incorrect
In last week's story on the
Wilkerson murder-suicide, writ-
er Andrew Bare identified Trac-
ey Benton as the late Thomas
Wilkerson's ex-wife. This is
incorrect Mr. Wilkerson's
ex-wife was Tracey Barton. The
newspaper regrets the error and
apologizes for any confusion it
may have caused.

probation


sentences
A half-year jail term and sev-
eral probation sentences were
handed down in circuit court dur-
ing a regular motion and docket
session on April 23.
Judge Phyllis Rosier ordered
Marquez Baker to serve six
months in county jail after ac-
cepting a no contest plea to pos-
Ssession of a controlled substance
with the intent to distribute.
In another drug-related case,
Michael McMenamy drew 18
months on supervised drug of-
fender probation in return for
his plea to felony possession of
marijuana.
Jennifer Dugger was ordered
to serve two years on probation
after pleading to felony driving
on a suspended license and reck-
less driving.
Judge Rosier ordered John
D. Hart II to pay restitution of,
$1978 to Mark Donley of Sand-
erson for stealing a four-wheel
ATV from a residence off CR
127 North in November of last
year.
The court ordered him also to
repay Karen Rosamonda, $650
to compensate her for a stereo
taking from her parked pickup in
northwest Macclenny the same
month. Mr. Hart has co-defen-
dants in both cases.

Clarification on

the 'clarification'
A letter to the editor in last
week's edition by Regina Berg-
er, a deputy court clerk, had the
notation "Clerk of Courts office"
under her signature.
The phrase was added by the
newspaper for clarification pur-
poses only, and was not intended
to insinuate that her opinion was
held by any other member of the
Baker County clerk's office.

THE BARE

TRUTH
ANDREW BARE
Democracy is loud.
It's a boisterous, confus-
ing cacophony of voices, some
qualified, some not so much, all
competing on the same level for
attention. There are no better ex-
amples of the infuriating, exhil-
arating nature of representative
government than two events re-
cently held in Baker County.
On April 5, Senator Bill Nel-
son (D), visited this little slice
of the state to hold a town hall
meeting with local residents.
His staff was on-hand to take
pictures of the senator interact-
ing with the common people.
In fact, Nelson, in a stunning
display of blue-collar solidarity,
went sans necktie.
For roughly 45 minutes,
Senator Nelson had a good-na-
tured conversation with those in
the attendance, touching on the
usual hot buttons of Iraq, immi-
gration and health care.
Toward the end of that 45
minutes, however, a local resi-
dent pressed Senator Nelson on
the issue of the Fair Tax, a con-
troversial proposal to replace all
income and payroll taxes with a
national sales tax. Senator Nel-
son responded, as expected, with
a statement in opposition. But
this resident wasn't dissuaded.
He pressed the senator. And
then he pressed some more. And
he kept pressing, his voice im-
bued with the blessed convic-
tion of a religious convert. All
the while Senator Nelson, a for-
mer astronaut, stood with a look
on his face which clearly said he
preferred the harsh, unforgiving
vacuum of space to the room in
which he was standing.
As a liberal Democrat, a
member of the MTV generation
and someone possessing the
concomitant attention span, lis-
tening to a rambling exhortation
on the benefits of the Fair Tax
was not a fun experience for me.
And yet, how amazing was it to
watch a United States senator,
a man representing one of the
most highly-influential states
in the country, get lectured by a
guy with a cause?
Then there was the Macclen-
ny City Commission meeting on
Tuesday, April 10, a four-hour
affair which' at times degener-
ated into something just short
of a shouting match. The larg-
est bone-of contention was a
proposed 94-acre commercial
development in the northeast
quadrant of I-10 and SR 228.
The developer, Warren Tyre,
attended the meeting to answer
any questions or criticisms. And
boy, there were plenty enough
of both that night. Approximate-
ly a dozen neighbors came to the
meeting and told Mr. Tyre and
the commission in no uncertain
terms what they thought of the
-proposal. They were concerned
mainly with how the develop-
ment would affect their back-
yards, and no amount of re-as-
surances from Mr. Tyre would
convince them that he shared
their worries.
Several times during the
meeting multiple residents
would speak at once, render-
ing the entire discussion inau-
dible except for the occasional
"fence," "retention pond" and
"should have known better." At
one (relatively quiet) point dur-
ing the proceedings, a resident
gently needled Mr. Tyre, softly
cooing, "What's the matter? You
don't look good."
Which, of course, he didn't.
Mr. Tyre looked about five min-
utes away from snapping like
Michael Douglas in "Falling
Down."
And again, there was a con-
flict for me. As an employee of a
company that puts out a product


on Wednesday morning and who
needed to be back in the office as
soon as possible Tuesday night,
the seemingly endless bickering
was infuriating. But as someone
whose job is entirely predicated
on the idea that open discourse is
the key component to a healthy
society, it was breathtaking to
witness a group of people raise
hell with someone proposing to
bring a multi-million dollar de-
velopment to Baker County.
It's said that true, undiluted
democracy works best at the
smallest levels. I don't know
if that's true. After the last few
weeks, however, I can say that
it tends to express itself most
ebulliently, if not always most
effectively, at those levels.-

'Rpetitive cycle of domestic violence


Dear Editor:
I have been part of this com-
munity for 14 years, and I recall
that almost every week there is
at least one account of domestic
violence in the news. As stated in
articles (The Baker County Press,
December 2006), children are
present to witness the violence,
and are often forced to flee to
safety with the battered parent.
As a member of the Mental
Health Association of Northeast
Florida and the American Coun-
seling, Association, I am con-
cerned about the emotional and
psychological needs of all people
involved in family violence, but
particularly the children.
How can children \ ho hI'a\
witnessed "famiy violence, or
even hear the sounds of it through
the walls, evidence of it, or have
fled their homes adjust emotion-
ally and do well in school?
These facts (Department of
Children and Families, 2006)
should be considered about chil-
dren who witness abuse in the
home. They are:
50% more likely to experi-

(This is the first in a series of "thought
pieces" by Ed Preston, Baker County's
planning director, designed to heighten
awareness during the time a DRI (devel-
opment of regional impact) undergoes
initial consideration by. state agencies.
The articles touch on key areas that will
be affected by a 600 unit development of
this scope (est. 12,000 more people) just
west of Glen St. Mary.)

BY ED PRESTON
Baker County Planning Director
We will be meeting over the
next five months with represen-
tatives-of the Cedar Creek devel-
opment to reach agreement on
what needs to be done to mitigate
the impacts of a project this size.
It boils down to this what do
we want?
A preliminary vision state-
ment developed by the county
last year says this about the Baker
County of the future: "A collec-
tion of small towns surrounded
by forest, farms and vacant land
supported by local employers."
The question now is, what do
you want for the future of Baker
County? Now is the time to think
about this, because over the next
five months we'll see clashes be-
tween competing interest both
big and small. Some are good
and some not so good!
Here's some examples:
/ Ed Fraser Hospital is con-
cerned about the effects of Cedai
Creek's "over-55" appeal. Since


etly in the classroom and learn.
Survival, physically ,and emo-
tionally, is their issue. It seems
understandable that they have
difficulty in the classroom, and
might act out or be withdrawn
and, disconnected from school
tasks. How can that child be ex-
pected to perform well on stan-
dardized tests like the FCAT?
Most will not receive the sup-
portive counseling that we know
can help them overcome the dif-
ficulties stemming from family
violence. Even though we have
all too many accounts of report-
ed occurrences, many are not
reported. Many of these children
will underachieve, drop out or
worse, come to the attention of
,law enforcement orithe juvtiile
or adult justice systems.
Fine, dedicated teachers often
say they cannot teach because of
behavior problems in the class-
room. School counselors and
psychologists are tasked with
testing and placement, and have
little time to help children liv-
ing with family violence. Men-
tal health counselors in suffi-
cient numbers are needed in our
schools, and they would benefit
individuals, families and the en-
tire community.
Without them, the destructive
patterns of domestic violence are
likely to repeat for generations.

Questions after murder suicide

Dear Editor:
I would like to comment on the murder on April 10 of Jennifer
Wilkerson and her unborn child and her husband Thomas, who killed
them and himself.
"When he is drunk, he is violent and cusses," Jennifer said in a court
document cited in the article in last week's newspaper. The article also
noted that she told her husband he was not the father of her unborn
child. Was this the weekend before he killed her? Did she tell him that
to make him angry or because she wanted him to leave her?
The article also noted that two women before Jennifer had also filed
restraining orders against Mr. Wilkerson. In 11 years Mr. Wilkerson
racked up 25 arrests since his first battery conviction in 1996.
In her letter to The Press last week, Regina Berger, a court clerk
deputy, said the system failed a mother and a child. "We deal with
these types of caseson a daily basis,'.s stated. "We stop and wonder
wheethsystem failed in this case."
I have several questions:
Did Mr. Wilkerson break the restraining order filed on March 23,
2007?
Sheriff Joey Dobson said that Jennifer told her husband the week-
end previous to the deaths. How did Sheriff Dobson get this informa-
tion, when and under what circumstances?
If Mr. Wilkerson did break the order, why was he not arrested right
then and there? Were Mrs. Wilkerson's actions in 2005/2006 for alleg-
edly hitting her husband in the knees with his crutch self-defense? The
charges were dropped.
Can the court order a violent person with a restraining order to
wear an ankle bracelet to monitor his or her whereabouts?
There is no safe house in Baker County for abused women and
children. Abusers should be professionally evaluated and treated, then
counseled.
The courts can order anger management classes, blood and urine
tests to check for chemical imbalances and even brain scans! Every-
thing possible should be done to prevent these tragedies in the future.

NEFSH recognizes volunteers; Finley

receives annual Jeanine Harvey award


BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff
The Northeast Florida State
Hospital Volunteer Appreciation
Day on April 18 recognized the
many people who unselfishly
commit their time, energy, tal-
ent and money to help meet the
needs of those served by the fa-
cility. Over 200 people turned
out for the observance.
According to Sam Kitching,
Director of Volunteer Services
at Northeast Florida State Hos-
pital, over 680 people currently
volunteer in different capacities
at the mental hospital located
south of Macclenny.
The winner of the 2007
Jeanine L. Harvey Award, pre-
sented during the celebration to
a Baker County resident for dis-
tinguished community volunteer
service, was Mary Finley. Linda
Gibson, daughter of the late Ms.
Harvey, presented the award.
Recipients of the award are
nominated by individuals or or-
ganizations in the community.
The 2007 nominees were Ressa
Morris, Debbie Willis, Dr. Kar-
en Steingarten and Ms. Finley.
Upon winning, Ms. Finley
stated "I have received the award
but each of you are priceless vol-
unteers. I urge you to, continue
your work."
The following awards and
recognition were also granted:
Elaine Roper, Friends of
NEFSH, Inc. Award; Ray Odom
and Pineview Chevrolet, 2007
Community Partner Award;
Brother Wesley Mosley and
Amazing Grace Ministries,
Heart of Gold Award.
Peggy McDonald, community
outreach coordinator for Dignity

and delivered a message on the
worth of volunteerism. The Dig-
nity U Wear Foundation, located
in Jacksonville, positively im-

Fails to blow up

pick-up truck
Police say that on the night
of April 18, someone slashed
the tires of a truck belonging to
a Macclenny man and failed in
their efforts to blow up the ve-
hicle.
David Reeves told police the
next morning he noticed that the
left rear tire of his 2005 Chev-
rolet pickup was slashed. But he
also saw a burnt rag lying on the
ground and a large burn mark on
the side of his truck. Deputy John
Hardin said that Mr. Reeves' gas
cap was also burned. The truck
was parked off Dale Court.
Mr. Reeves accused a local
woman he said was feuding with
his daughter.
In other incidents, vandals
broke every light on a New Hol-
land 'tractor belonging to the
courity road department May
22. The tractor was parked at
the St. Marys Shoal's Park when
a department employee noticed
someone had destroyed the
headlights, taillights and all oth-
er warning lights on the vehicle.
Police say someone used a car
to break into the outdoor cooler
at the Country Club Lounge.
Deputy Gavin Sweat found teal
paint on the cooler, but the po-
lice currently have no suspects.
No property or merchandise
were reported taken.


"These acts of kindness add
tremendously to the quality
of life and services we can of-
fer those being served here at
NEFSH," said Mr. Kitching.
"These people and organizations
deserve to be recognized and
our volunteer appreciation day is
how we attempt to do thatt"
Walmart Distribution Center
donated the meal of chicken,
vegetables, fruit salad, rolls and
cheesecake, which was prepared
by the hospital's dietary staff.

tions and individuals who so
graciously give materials, time
and monetary donations.


pacts the lives of those in need,
55% of whom are children, by
providing brand new clothing.
Ms. McDonald stated that ac-
cording to the Points of Light
Foundation, the average hourly
rate of a volunteer is equivalent
to $18.77, indicating just how
significant their services are.
"Volunteers are priceless,"
she said.
Mr. Kitching gave examples
of the impressive scope and
variety of some of the services
provided by volunteers during
the year.
"The men's group from the
First United Methodist Church
and the American Legion help
keep our bicycle shop running
so our clients have good work-
ing bikes for recreation and ex-
ercise.
"Volunteers come from Jack-
sonville to conduct Sunday Ser-
vices and we have ladies from
Christian Fellowship who bring
in their puppet ministry pro-
grams," said Mr. Kitching. "A
local lady, Shirley Rowe, solic-
its funds during the year to buy
materials to make dolls for our
female clients so they all get one
during our holiday happiness
celebration."
According to Mr. Kitch-
ing, numerous individuals and
groups donate performances for
the hospital's many entertain-
ment programs, such as blue-
grass music, gospel singing, and
the ever popular 'Elvis Himself'
who impersonates the King ev-
ery Mother's Day. People and
organizations also donate their
services in the form of cleri-
cal work or make contributions
such as the large screen TV in
the Eagles Nest respite area for
patients who earn privileges on
the NEFSH campus. Many busi-
nesses like Catos donates sur-
plus clothing.

The wallet contained $45 and
his driver's license. He told po-

Board shells out money for extra fire alarms


.BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff
The Baker County School
Board on April 23 voted to spend
$2,731 to cover new fire alarm
equipment needed at two addi-
tional portables at Baker County
High School. All portable class-
rooms are required to pass fire
alarm safety standards.
The portables have been
added since the school district
accepted a previous bid from
Siemens Building Technologies.
The money will cover the costs
and installation of the smoke de-
tector devices, programming of
the devices and contracting of
electrical installation.
The district will sell surplus
property consisting of a drill
press, planer, and wood lathe
to Pat Mobley for $904.55. Mr.
Mobley's was the sole bid.
In other discussions at its
regular meeting April 23 at the
Baxter fire station, member Paul
Raulerson suggested advertising
to additional venues to increase
public awareness of availability
of used school district equip-
ment when it comes up for sale.
Posting notices in all school
offices and utilizing the district's
website as well as other advertis-


ing sources will be explored.
Garlon Webb, Director of Vo-
cational and Adult Education,
presented Superintendent Paula
Barton with a framed copy of
The Career Academy National
Standards Proclamation. The
.standards were adopted by the
school board February 21, 2006.
The proclamation commits the
district to programs that expose
students to career tracks while
they complete courses prior to
college entrance.
The board also approved an
agreement with Lake City Com-
munity College for the 2007-
08 year. The agreement creates
opportunities for high school
students to pursue college-level
instruction through accelerated
vocational and adult programs

BY KELLEY LANNIGAN
Press Staff
The group of ten ladies gath-
ered at the table in Calendar's
Restaurant in Macclenny had
a special birthday surprise for
their friend Marie Cannon. Pre-
viously, Ms. Cannon had casual-
ly mentioned to her friends that
she would be happy to soon turn
age 65. When they asked why
hitting the big "six-five" was
such a good thing she answered
with conviction.
"I'll be eligible for Medicare,"
she told them, laughing. "And
that's just fine with me.'
Armed with that tidbit of in-
formation, the ladies set out to
present Ms. Cannon with exact-
ly what she desired. They made
a copy of a real Medicare card,
blanked out the personal infor-
mation and took it to the bakery
department at the Macclenny
Food Lion.
A clever employee re-created
a cakersized Medicare card.
When Ms. Cannon arrived at
the restaurant for the birthday
celebration, she was seated at
the head of a table in a chair fes-
tooned with brightly colored bal-
loons. Much to her surprise and
amusement, her new "Medicare
card" was waiting on the table.
After a lunch of pizza and sal-
ad came the lighting of the cake.
Ms. Cannon made a wish before
blowing out the single candle.
"I wish for 65 more good
years," she announced, to which
the entire table applauded.
As Ms. Cannon opened her
presents, each lady also got, a
small token gift to take home.

ladies dug around in their purses
until someone produced a packet
of floss.
A long length was extracted
and pulled tightly from end to
end, then used to quickly and ex-
pertly slice the cake into a dozen
neat, uniform sections. The tech-
nique worked like a charm.
"Well, if that don't beat all,"
one observer declared.
Ms. Cannon read out loud
some hilarious captions from
her birthday cards and there was
lots of laughter and hugs. The
ladies were happy for all their
years lived and happy for their
friendship.
Age 65 should be a celebra-
tion, not-'ablack flag day, they
agreed. To them, getting older
means getting better.

Deborah Lynn Griffis
8/28/1980-5/1/2001
Each time we see the sun go
down, it seems the end of the
day, and yet we know the sun is
rising somewhere faraway.
And when we lose some-
one we love, we learn to trust
somehow, that a new life, in a
brighter place, is just beginning
now.
A place of grace and peace
and joy beyond all time and
sorrow, where loving hearts
who part today will meet again
tomorrow.
WE LOVE YOU ALWAYS,

In Memory
of
Annie L. Mills
1912-1983
In the most precious memory of
our mother, Mrs. Annie L. Mills,
who even until now you are still
our. great inspiration because
you were a real mother who
loved the Lord. You were a living
witness to all that would listen,
that now is the day of salvation;
I Corinthians 6:2 Knowing this,
that our old man is crucified with
him, that the body of sin might
be destroyed that henceforth, we
should not serve sin. Romans
6:6 He promised no immunity
from "Chance;" instead, a cross
with adverse circumstances; Yet
we may toil with joy in all we do,
for life is brief-eternity is in view.
If there ever was a time to find
peace in God, we sure do need
it now. With much love and ap-
preciation for our mother, your
teachings still ring true today.

LOVE ALWAYS,
YOUR FAMILY

and Thomas Braddy


Lee is state champion;


other school records set


Junior Lucious Lee more
than bested his fifth place finish
last year and emerged from last
week's finals in Daytona Beach
as the first state weightlifting
champion from Baker High
School in a decade.
He won the 199 class with a
680 point total, including a per-
sonal best 290 pounds on the
clean and jerk that locked up the
state title when coupled with a
390 pound bench press.
Ironically, Lee beat one of
coach Bobby Johns' former lift-
ers at Blountstown High by 35
pounds on his way to the title.
Lee also plays football for coach
Johns.
Sophomore Thomas Braddy
placed sixth in the 219 class and
set a new school record with
640 total points, including a 325
bench and 315 clean and jerk
- a record lift.
Brandon Lucas in the 154
pound class set a new school re-
cord with a,275 pound. clean and
jerk. The old record was 250.
"If Chaz Johns had lifted, he
would have won the 238 class by
at least 20 pounds, and as a team
we would have placed third in the
state," said coach Johns about his
son sidelined by an injury.
Johns had already posted a
745 total this year, and his 238
pound class vas one by a lifter
with 725.
"With Lucious and Thomas
coming back next year, along
with Ryan Young, our other
qualifier, .and many lifters who
were very close to making it; we


should have a great chance to
win the state championship next
season," predicted the coach.
Other than the above men-
tioned, other Baker High records
set this year include:
Ryan Young, 119 class, a
195. pound clean and jerk.
Lucious Lee, 199 class, a
405 bench.
Chaz Johns, 238 class, 345
pound clean and jerk; 745 total.
